DASYLab 2016(v14) and DT9805/DT9806 thermocouples mode


The following information and attached example (DT9806_Temp_Measure_DLv14.DSB) will enable a user with a DT9805 or DT9806 module to acquire temperature data, using thermocouples and DASYLab 2016 v14.0.

Begin by verifying that you have Data Translation’s Open Layers software v7.8.0 or greater installed.  (The latest version of Data Translation’s Open Layers is available for download from www.mccdaq.com)



Once verified, connect a DT9805 or DT9806 module to your system’s USB port.
Next, open the DASYLab 2016 Configurator.


Verify that you have Data Translation’s package v14.2.0.0.en enabled.  (Note: the German version of the Data translation package is v14.2.0.0.de.)



There should only be one version enabled per manufacturer.  Click the OK button to close the Configurator.
Launch DASYLab 2016 v14.0 and open the attached example (DT9806_Temp_Measure_DLv14.DSB).  Since your Data Translation module’s board name may be different from the board name, DT9806(00), used to create this example, you will be prompted with the following error message.



Click the OK button to finish loading the example.



Right click on the ‘DT AIN00’ module and select ‘Delete Module’.  Afterwards, drag and drop a Data Translation ‘Analog Input’ module onto your worksheet.  



Double click on the ‘Analog Input’ module to configure its settings.  In the Select Board field, click on the combo box to select your DT9805 or DT9806 module.



Click on the ‘+’ arrow to add channels 1 and 2.  The example uses two channels for temperature measurements using thermocouples.  (Analog input channels can be added or deleted accordingly after this exercise to create your own custom worksheet.)



Select channel 0 and configure the settings using the following screen captures.  Note: channel 0 is for the CJC readings, so no thermocouples should be connected to channel 0’s physical terminals (pin 1 and 2).





Configure the first thermocouple channel as follows.





Repeat channel 1’s settings for channel 2.  (Analog input channels can be added or deleted accordingly afterwards to create your own custom worksheet.)

Reestablish the terminal connections between the Analog Input module and the Scaling module.



The Scaling module (Thermocouple Linearization option) allows a user to set the thermocouple type and unit.



Repeat for channel 2. 

The second Scaling module converts the CJC voltage reading to temperature.



The Formula Interpreter module is used to add the CJC temperature reading, IN(0), to each input channel’s reading, IN(1), in order to calculate the thermocouple’s temperature reading.





In the Formula Interpreter, channel 0 refers to your first thermocouple, while channel 1 refers to your second thermocouple channel.

Save your updated worksheet and then start an acquisition.
